evening, everyone. i'm don lemon. >>> we begin with america's ferocious debate over health care reform growing more unhealthy by the day. across the country we're witnessing town hall meetings on health care devolving into shouting matches worthy of a jerry springer episode with people lashing out over who ultimately pays the bill for millions of medically uninsured americans. >> the event remained largely civil. huge crowds overwhelmed the meeting hall with hundreds more gathering outside. >> we're very, very scared. >> when the republicans controlled congress and the senate, why didn't you introduce and pass health care reform? >> my biggest fear is this is going to get rammed down our throats. >> this is a mob. do we look like a mob? >> this doesn't look like mob this looks like home. >> some estimated that as many as another 800 couldn't get in and were locked outside. >> won't even let us in. they blocked us out. >> my son has the right to live. >> no doubt about it. >> my son has the right to health care. >> you don't really think you're going to get that, ma'am, in this bill, do

, outrageous. >> you didn't want it to happen again, and news this week, it did. citigroup, bank of america, nine of the firms that received bailout money paid out billions and billions in bonuses. citigroup alone, which suffered losses last year got $45 billion and paid out $5.3 billion in bonuses and yet the white house has been pretty quiet. is the president outraged again? >> you know, certainly the president is very concerned about executive compensation in general. that's part of why he supported things like say on pay, again, to make sure as we go forward that at least shareholders are minding the store. we also did appoint a special master there in the treasury department to take these decisions out of political hands, someone who is is supposed to be watching those firms that are getting extensive government and taxpayer money. and he's certainly going to be making recommendations. >> will you assure us it won't happen again this year? >> remember what mr. fineberg's job description? he's trying to walk a line. weapon want them to earn money, pay the taxpayers back. absolutely what

in america. thank you, sir. >> you bet. >> you heard the young man there. he's saying, you know, people are accusing us of being racist and that's not so. >> well, you know, not everyone who opposes the president's plan or him as an individual obviously is acting on the basis of racism. my argument is that there is a background noise of the hostility that is, i think, about what i guess i would call white racial resentment. let me give you an example. we know in missouri the other day a white man goes, assaults a black woman, rips up her poster of rosa parks and receives a huge ovation from literally hundreds of white folks in attendance for doing that, and then as they haul her away, the police in the room, the security, haul her away, these white folks are applauding. she was assaulted, a picture of rosa parks ripped up. there are white folks in the room with posters that refer to the president by the "n" word. no one seemed to care about that. secondly, we've got right wing radio talk show hosts who for months now have been playing the white racial resentment card to get their forces
where my father was bosrn, know that america is a friend of each nation. each man, woman and child can take peace and dignity. we're ready to lead once more. >> we're back with the united states ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. he said we are ready to lead once more. what are you doing differently, the president of the united states, his ambassador to the united nations, his diplomatic core around the world. world. what you are doing differently than the previous administration? >> we're doing a lot differently, john. what i think is so striking is six months into the new administration the president and his national security team have made enormous progress in restoring our standing. we see that manifest in our efforts to concert other countries to deal with the global financial crisis. we see that in a very changed approach in iraq where we are redeploying our forces responsibly and we're on track to have all of our forces out by 2011. we have a completely new approach in afghanistan and pakistan. we're focused very concretely on disrupting and dismantling and defeating
called a jobless recovery. where the stock market was strong, corporate america was strong, but the jobs just weren't there. so will this president be able to take credit for recovery if the jobs don't come back? >> well, we'll see. we'll see what other burdens he puts on the economy as well, which i think is another problem. i know we're not talking about health care now, but as other things come down the pike that cost a lot of money, and you have people talking about new taxes,well see what other burdens go on the economy. but, look, the most -- one of the most resilient things in the world is the american economy. it is a very strong beast. and even with these burdens, i think you're going to see it come back. the question is, how strongly will it come back? that will have to do with how much else president obama decides to put on the back of the beast. >> but one of the things that i believe is important to acknowledge is because this is not just a washington problem. this is a problem taking place in state capitals across the country, as we see decline in revenues, and also propert

't fly with middle america. >> we absolutely cannot afford a quick fix on everything he wants to do. i would just assume him pick one major topic, get that taken care of, at least figure out a way to get it paid for. >> i think he's just moving too fast, trying to do everything all at once. where he should take his time. >> great conversation, a fabulous meal. the fourth street special, as long as you can calf out a little extra gym time. >> a break, and then more "sound of sunday." - hi. - blue shirts: hello! i don't know anything about computers and my daughter is going to college, so she needs one. - can you help me? - ( shouting ) - yes, you. - our line of next class laptops are perfect for college, and they start at just $650. are those good? 'cause i don't want to get her something - that she thinks is totally lame. - no, they're awesome. and they come with pre-loaded software so she won't have to do a thing. - great. she's good at that. - ( blue shirts laugh ) laptops designed for college and thousands of people eager to help. best buy. buyer be happy. not long ago, this man had
recognition that the system we have in america is fundamentally broken. we spend more than any country on earth. our health results look like we're a developing nation. so we have to reform the system. and i think what's going on right now is complicated, because we need to put the specific language together. but by and large, i find encouraging that congress is at the table, working, that congress is now traveling out to hear from their constituents. we knew we were in trouble in pennsylvania, john, when the woman who runs the constitutional law center got up to welcome the crowd and she was booed. so, clearly, some of this anger is not directed to health reform. it's people who are, i think, uncertain and afraid about the future and, unfortunately, there's been a lot of misinformation intentionally circulated, trying to scare people. trying to scare seniors and veterans. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. i want to get to some of those specific points and some of what you call misinformation coming up. you were the governor of kansas. democrats were saying, let's wait another month. let's se
a short time ago that those tactics, those interrogation tactics have hurt america. >> i think that these interrogations, once publicized, help al qaeda recruit. i got that from an al qaeda operative from a prison camp in iraq who told me that. >> again, that's general petraeus' view. that's admiral blair's view, tom ridge's view. anybody who did this in the military would be court marshalled on the spot. a difficult time in the nation's history. it seems the weight of opinion is that these things made us less safe. but, again, the timing of the attorney general -- i'm interested to see what senator feinstein's committee reports. i think every american scis. but if the attorney general believes -- there could be new evidence, any number of things -- it's in the hands of a republican. a person who is an expert in this kind of stuff, my hope is in three months he comes back and says we will not pursue this. >> there is no new evidence. when the prosecutors decline to prosecute -- >> what about senator mccain's point? >> he said operatively in that sentence, once it was publicized
a bounce once middle america feels that their retirement security is safe and also once their wages are not lagging behind the cost of living. >> so, mark, the president could use a big win, and he's not going to get it when it comes to health care anytime soon because they're going on recess. that's not stopping him from going out and selling his plan to the american people. >> no, don, and, in fact, he really needs to do that over the month of august and he really needs to try to push and promote the idea that this is a crisis and we need to get this health care bill through. at the same time, you will have members of congress who have left washington who are going to be back at home, at the rotary club meetings, who are going to be meeting with constituents. they're going to get an earful about what they want done regarding the whole idea of health care. so not only will you see members of congress back out, administration officials, but you're going to continue to see tens of millions of dollars of ads running across the country really trying to influence what's going to happen
henry, "washington post" reporter and arthur dan bald, he is co-author of "battle for america 2008" and jessica yellin. that's the book right here. good beach ride. to read. excellent. i saw a dramatic statement from the number two democrat in the senate this morning, dick durbin. the house and senate both missed the president's deadline to pass health care bills before going on the congressional recess. dick durbin, want to be fair to him, he said he wants that government option that the president says is so critical. he wants it and hopes it there in the end, but dick durbin opening the door to a senate bill that does not have the public option. >> i support a public option, but, yes, i'm open. we will see how this ends, but i don't want the process to be filibustered to failure, which, unfortunately, many senators are trying to do i want to make sure we do something positive for the american people. >> he sounded like the number two democrat in the senate. he's a close friend of the president of the united states, and he is essentially saying we may have to initially compromise
. there's rallies throughout the country being sponsored by obama for america, which is a democratic national committee arm of the obama campaign. they're going to now have to decide if they go it alone just on democratic votes as brianna said in her report setting up this discussion here, and they have some strategic decisions to make. most important, do they want to go for the whole loaf of bread or will they take some slices and do it now? too soon to tell. way too soon. >> lynn sweet, always good stuff, as usual. thank you. >> thanks, don. >>> here is a known sex offender who met regularly with a parole officer, yet phillip garrido was able to lead a double life and allegedly hold jaycee dugard against her will. how could this happen and should sex offenders ever be released? we'll ask marc klaas. founder of the klaas kids foundation. >>> later, a simple fishing trip we'll tell you turns into a week lost at sea. for three men. even the coast guard had given up their search. you won't believe their remarkable rescue. excedrin back and body has two ingredients to block and relieve
form state that like everywhere in america is dealing with the fallout of the national recession. let's take a look at some of the numbers. the unemployment rate in kansas, 7.4%. now, that's better than the national rate, but kansas lost the highest percentage of jobs in any state in the month of june, the latest numbers available. one thing helping the economy in the state, the presence of ft. riley, a giant army installation that contributed nearly $2 billion to the kansas economy in the fiscal year 2008. i asked the locals in junction city where to find a good breakfast, they'll tell you all the farmers and soldiers to stacies, so we did, for a great meal and a healthy dose of skepticism that answers to big problems are found here in washington. >> we are a lot more fortunate than other communities, because we do have ft. riley right outside our gates. and at the end of the day, we're still going to have soldiers here, still going to have civilian contractors that work on posts, so our community is better prepared than other communities and the hardships they're facing right now. >

administration didn't focus on the real danger to america on being a safe haven for terrorists. they could have gotten the job done, they didn't get it done. >> but you get tension within your caucus about this. their more muscular than many. >> we don't always have complete agreement within our caucus, that's fine, a healthy debate is a good thing for democracy. so i -- no, i think we're proud that this administering's been willing to take on the economy, willing to take on foreign policy, will become to take on health care. taking on the issues that matter to the american people. >> let's move on to an easier issue, right? health care. i want to ask the question first in the context of what we learned in the end of the week. the budget review is late this year, but they now say the deficit over the ten year period to come will be at $9 trillion, $9 trillion with a t, dollars, that's up from $7 trillion estimate a few months back when they released their budget in february. with that context, with a bigger deficit, is it time for the president to hit the reset button? forget sweeping, prove yo
